Beccles bowls ace Ian Catchpole lost narrowly in the first round of the National U25 Singles finals at the weekend.

The final stages of the competition were held at Melton Mowbray last weekend where Catchpole lost to Stuart Holland from Preston.

Both players won one set each, which led to a three-end sudden death play-off which saw Catchpole edged out.

Tomorrow, Beccles are back in Denny Plate action when they play Wellingborough in the last 16. The match will be on a two rinks home and away basis, but because of the distance between the two venues the starting time will be 11am.
